Real Man Cook 2012 DevanFor the second consecutive year, GDI’s Devan Powe participated in the 23 rd Anniversary Real Men Cook for Charity 2012, held for the first time at the Georgia World Congress Center, downtown Atlanta, on Father’s Day, June 17. Other GDI members onsite were President Cora O’Kelley, Vice President and wife of Devan, Cheryl Powe, Treasurer Kim Davis and CFO Melanie Fields. Ambassadors Gloria Etherly and Purman Lockman were onsite as well to help GDI during this great affair.
The chefs competed in several categories (Amateurs and Professionals), Appetizer, Entrée and Dessert. Chef Devan’s delicious dish was jerk chicken and rice with peas, and it was quite delicious. The lines were long at his station to get some of his tasty vittles. GDI is so supportive of Devan’s willingness to represent his culinary skills at such a huge and successful event. We appreciate him going the extra miles to prepare food for so many Real Men Cook Charity attendees and his commitment to the family cause, especially on Father’s Day.
